Resumen

CARGNELUTTI, Diego E.  y  SALOMON, María Cristina. Human diphyllobothriosis: A case in a non-endemic area of Argentina. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2012, vol.72, n.1, pp. 40-42. ISSN 0025-7680.

Diphyllobothriosis is an intestinal parasitosis caused by cestodes infection of the genus Diphyllobothrium. In Argentina, the Andean Patagonia is considered an endemic area for this parasitosis. Diphyllobothrium latum infection has not been previously reported in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. We are now reporting then the first case. Diphyllobothriosis was confirmed by examination of morphologic characteristics of the eggs eliminated in the patients' feces. These results suggest the requirement of a more specific training of health workers in the diagnosis and treatment of non endemic parasitosis. We want to emphasize the need of health workers' education on diagnosis and treatment of endemic and non-endemic parasitosis.

Palabras clave : Mendoza; Cestode infections; Diphyllobothrium latum; Oncorhynchus kisutch.
